An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.2 shook buildings in at least four states Friday, but apparently caused little or no damage. The afternoon quake was centered in northwest Pennsylvania, about 15 miles northeast of Sharon, according to a statement released by the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colo. "I thought the whole house was going to fall down. It shook that hard. I thought it was a tornado," said Patty Cook, 28, of Jamestown, a small city near the quake's epicenter.

A strong earthquake rattled much of the northeastern United States and eastern Canada on Friday, shaking buildings in both nations, knocking out power and phone service in much of Quebec province and frightening thousands of people, authorities said. There were no immediate reports of serious damage or injury. The Canadian government said that the earthquake, which was measured at a preliminary magnitude of 6.0 on the Richter scale, was the most powerful temblor to strike the region since 1935.
